This zine consists of quite a mixed bag of story lines. Several stories find Vincent and Catherine in alternate/fantasy universes: Sherwood Forest, old Kentucky, a jungle and more. Three stories follow events of the 3rd season. One is a SND; in another, Vincent discovers Catherine's twin sister; and in the final story, Mr. Rourke (of Fantasy Island) grants Diana's wish to allow Vincent one last day with Catherine. Diana appears as a friend in this zine. There is also a Star Trek: The Next Generation crossover, plus a thought-provoking Vincent and Catherine married short story. Nice art with Barbara Gipson's pieces being extremely memorable. There's definitely something for everyone here. [1]
